Tufted Love (My New Office Chair)

Yay I have an office chair!

Remember this handsome guy? I called him my grandpa chair:

I really wanted to keep him but sadly his arms didn’t fit under my newly refinished desk. But I really loved this guy’s midcentury features, the shiny leather next to the walnut wood, the tufted seat, and the fact that he was in AMAZING condition. Fortunately I was able to sell him for a decent price to someone who I think will appreciate his awesomeness. Now I imagine him living a comfortable life in hipsterland surrounded by his midcentury peers.

ANYWAY, back to my new chair. I couldn’t find a cute office chair that didn’t look too “office-y”. This office area is in our bedroom and we only use it for household stuff, so I didn’t want it to get too businesslike and potentially stressful. I ended up choosing the Lydia dining chair from World Market.

It’s a nice neutral steel gray in a lovely soft velvet so I think it’ll go well anywhere in the house if I decide to move it later. I’m going to make a more poppy, colorful cushion to go on it to bring in more color.

I like that it’s kind of a more feminine shape, which is kind of what I’m going for in the bedroom.

The nailhead trim makes it a little more interesting from the back, since that’s the first view when you enter the room.

There’s not too much going on on the desk right now, which is just how I like it.

Oh and you may have noticed the closet doors are back on after having been newly painted bright white. I need to get some cute knobs for them now.

This view is nice too:

I guess baby approves.

I’m actually really glad I was able to sell the old chair and use the money toward something that suited the space better. Oh, and the new chair was 15% off and I had a $10 reward that I used on it so that really helped to alleviate any buyer’s guilt too =).
